Hey lains, I haven't really read a book for fun in a while, and I'm thinking I want to get back into the cyberpunk genre. What are your favorite /cyb/ books?
I loved Neuromancer(obviously) but I read some of Gibson's more recent work, Pattern Recognition, and I really hated it. I really like Peter Watts' books, because they're very technical. People shit on Maelstrom but I thought it was great.
Accelerando - Charles Stross 2312 - Kim Stanley Robinson
I could add more, but that might just be overload. There are a few nice short stories I've come across, too, like Taklamakan by Sterling, or Unwirer by Stross and Doctorow. Sources for all are attached.
I also really like the books from Peter Watts. I understand that you already read the rifter trilogy, but how about Blindsight and Echopraxia? Also very great books.
Other suggestions: The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson The Silo trilogy by Hugh Howey (not as cyber, but has a very interesting post-apocalyptic setting) Little Brother and Homeland by Cory Doctorow
Other non-cyberpunk recommendations: The Hollow Earth by Rudy Rucker Space Odyssey Series by Arthur C.Clarke Solaris by Stanislaw Lem 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami (not cyberpunk at all, but very interesting read)
